TGC Costs Team hosting a series of Webinars via Zoom

7th May 2020

As the legal industry embraces remote working, our TGC Costs Team is hosting a series of Webinars via Zoom.  These will be interactive sessions that will be free to join. Our first Webinar will be – Ask the TGC Costs Barristers!  Ask away on what concerns you, whether Covid-19 related or not. Our panel of costs specialists will be made up of Simon Browne QC, Mark James, James Laughland, Richard Wilkinson and Matt Waszak.

We would like participants to email us with any questions they have that we can discuss and debate, and hopefully provide you with a general steer and the best practice to adopt.

The session is intended to be relaxed, engaging and interactive. The Webinar will last approximately 45 minutes – 1hr and will be held Thursday 21st May at 12 noon.

Please follow this quick and easy link to register –  https://tgchambers.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_AeIWI_HBQ1-M2cqhkruBzA. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.

We welcome any questions (which will all be anonymised).  Please email these through to events@tgchambers.com. There will also be the option to ask questions and interact during the webinar.

There will be a prize sent out for the most interesting question!

We very much hope that you will be able to join us on the 21st  May 2020.

We will be updating this page as and when new information becomes available.

As of 25th March, our London premises, 1 Harcourt Buildings has been closed until further notice and all barristers, clerks and support staff will be working remotely.

We wish to reassure everyone that our contingency plans we have put in place enable us to continue to provide our services.

Please send all instructions via email directly to clerks@tgchambers.com we would be grateful if this could be sent in an orderly fashion to enable working from a screen manageable.  We are unable to receive hard copy instructions via DX or Post until further notice, unless specific arrangements are made in advance by contacting the clerks.

Please continue to communicate with barristers directly via email.

We will continue to closely monitor this situation.
